    I'd go with the BLP-CTM. It's a nice guitar!

    I will admit that I have no experience with bigsby attachments on guitars, but I am curious if anyone can tell from the pic below if this bigsby was installed without drilling any additional holes? I was considering buy a bigbsy BLP-CTM model and just take off the bigsby.

    Yep. That's a factory installed Bigsby (which makes sense because Deviser made a bunch of Bigsby Classic CTM types). Were it not, you'd see the stud holes for the tailpiece half sticking out from under the Bigsby just by the tension bar.

    Bacchus produced gibson copies w/o serial numbers from 94-97/98. My guess would be around 97 and made in Japan.

    thanks! by the way the original bridge was a gotoh 510, replaced it with an "old school" style wrap around tailpiece. sacrificed the intonation for more accurate looking copy. lol.

    i did ask them through FB page, they were the ones couldn't find any info about it.


    same question here. :)

    thank you everybody for the replies. :)

    Afaik early ones had the correct gibson bell trc. Around 96-97 the trc changed to the shape on your junior and again in 98-99 the trc changed to the current Bacchus trc.

    I need stronger glasses! That would be one of the early ones. Also i forgot to mention that the earliest ones didnt have the Live Road script logo on the headstock. So maybe 94-96?

    That sounds better :D

    It would be a BLJ-59 TVY or something like that. I'm not sure if they specified SC or DC.

    here are the other photos for more reference. thanks @free713 & @Grammy bird for the info. :)
    the original bridge is this one gotoh 510. (shown below) too modern for my taste in terms of aesthetics. :)
